PADI Nitrox Specialty Course

For Qualified Divers (min OWD)

85.5 €

* online price, does not include certification and teaching materials, in total 70 €

Course content

Why is EANx the most popular diving course? Because scuba diving with enriched air nitrox gives you more no decompression time, especially on repetitive scuba dives. 

You’ll learn why diving with air that has higher oxygen and lower nitrogen content gives you more bottom time, along with enriched air equipment considerations.

The Nitrox course itself is “a dry course”, no dives are required. You can add two dives (for additional 90€) on Enriched Air Nitrox with your Instructor as part of the course.

Frequently asked questions

Can I do the Enriched Air Nitrox course with you?

Of course you can!  Anyone who has completed the PADI Open Water Course can do the Nitrox Course. This course itself is “a dry course”, no dives are required. However you can combine it with one dive, this allows you to put the theory work into practice.

Then with Divinguru® all Enriched Air certified divers have nitrox for free!

What marine life I can see?

Every dive is unpredictable and unique, that’s why diving is so exciting. As we go off the shore we are in the real nature and not in a zoo as we cannot promise or guarantee to see particular wild animals. However we guarantee that our team makes maximum to find them and fulfill your expectations.

Marine life you may see include: Stingrays, Eagle Rays, Turtles, Moray Eels, Nudibranchs, Cuttlefish, Octopus, Barracuda, Trevally, Angelfish, Triggerfish, Soldier Fish, Surgeon Fish, Pufferfish, Fusiliers, Lion Fish, Sea Stars and many other coral reef fish. Whale Sharks can be spotted on both east and south coast. Black Tip Reef Sharks you find on the famous Pigeon Island, located a few minutes from our Divinguru® Nilaveli Resort. Whales and Dolphins can be spotted around Trincomalee while Whale Watching. If you get really lucky, time to time you might see them in Unawatuna too.
